From high summer into early autumn, the purple-washed, erect stems of Astrantia major Sparkling Stars Red produce a welcome injection of colour to the border. Pincushion-like umbels of pink flowers, surrounded by prominent, purple-tipped, burgundy bracts are marvellously refined in their detail and attract native pollinators. The deeply cut foliage is also appealing, tinged with purple and forming handsome clumps.
